1 Scope
This European Standard specifies requirements, test methods, the marking and evaluation of conformity for
packaged and/or site assembled domestic wastewater treatment plants (including guest houses and
businesses) used for populations up to 50 inhabitants. Small wastewater treatment plants according to this
European Standard are used for the treatment of raw domestic wastewater.
It covers plants with tanks made of concrete, steel, PVC-U, Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP) and Glass
Reinforced Polyester (GRP-UP).
The test methods specified in this European Standard establish the performance of the plant, needed to verify
its suitability for the end use (see 3.1).
This European Standard applies for small wastewater treatment plants for use buried in the ground where no
vehicle loads are applied to the product.
This European Standard applies to plants where all prefabricated components are factory or site-assembled
by one manufacturer and which are tested as a whole.
NOTE In some countries, domestic wastewater treatment plants are followed by other systems to conform to national
regulations.

Figure 2 – Definition of parameters
6.2.1.2 Backfill load
Calculation of backfill loads shall take account of the effect of ground conditions, backfill materials and tank
shape factors. A vertical and a horizontal component shall be calculated as follows:
⎯ vertical component: h x 18 (expressed in kN/m
2
), where 18 (kN/m

) is the specific weight of the soil;
⎯ horizontal component: K x D x 18 (expressed in kN/m
2
), where D is the distance from the ground level to
the point where the load applies:
⎯ sand: K = 0,33;
⎯ gravel: K = 0,27;
⎯ other backfill materials: K = 0,5.
6.2.1.3 Hydrostatic loads
A vertical and a horizontal component shall be calculated as follows:
⎯ vertical component: H
w
x 10 (expressed in kN/m
2
), where 10 (kN/m
3
) is the action resulting from the
specific weight of water;
⎯ horizontal component: D x 10 (expressed in kN/m
2
).
On sites where the groundwater table is significant (the highest level of the groundwater table is above the
bottom of the tank), the stability conditions of the product in relation to the water pressure shall be indicated in
the manufacturer's instructions. In this case, the specific load of soil is 10 kN/m
3
and shall be added to the
water load.

6.2.1.4 Pedestrian loads
A figure of 2,5 kN/m² shall be considered only when the height of the backfill is less than 1,0 m. Over 1,0 m,
pedestrian loading is assumed to be negligible against other actions.
6.2.2 Testing of crushing resistance/maximum load deformation
The structural behaviour of the plant shall be determined by the crushing resistance/maximum load
deformation.
6.3 Treatment efficiency ! !! !deleted text" "" "
The plant shall demonstrate compliance with the wastewater treatment efficiency performances and the
related operational data declared by the manufacturer, when tested according to Annex B.
!The manufacturer’s declaration shall be expressed in terms of the treatment efficiency ratios on COD,
BOD and SS in relation to the tested organic daily load as indicated in B.4." Each efficiency ratio is
calculated using the following formula:
i
o i
P
P P
R

= (1)
where
R is the efficiency ratio for a given parameter (COD, BOD, SS…);
P
i
is the value of the given parameter at the inlet;
P
o
is the value of the same given parameter at the outlet.
The ratio declared by the manufacturer shall not be greater than those obtained by the test made according to
Annex B. In addition, another way of expression of the efficiency may be used for BOD, COD and suspended
solid.
EXAMPLE Minimum and maximum concentrations of the effluent and/or the influent.
NOTE The ratios obtained do not automatically mean that the regulatory requirements on effluent qualities in a given
country are met. A calculation should be made to indicate the final effluent qualities which should be compared to the
requirements valid in the place of use.
These ratios may not always be obtained when the plant is operating in practice.
!In addition, the following parameters shall be declared: nominal organic daily load and nominal hydraulic
daily flow. Total power consumption shall be declared, if applicable."
Where required, i.e. by national regulations, parameters described in B.2.4 shall be declared.
6.4 Watertightness
6.4.1 General
The plant shall be watertight up to the height declared by the manufacturer; the minimum declared height shall
be the top of the tank (see Figure A.1).

The test procedure shall be in accordance with EN 976-1:1997, 6.8 without taking into account 6.8.1.
C.6 Pit test
C.6.1 Sample
The test shall be carried out on an empty plant equipped with pipe connections (inlet, outlet and
interconnection pipes), its cover(s) and any extension and/or maintenance shaft(s).
The plant shall be installed in a watertight test excavation. The size of the testing excavation shall be
calculated to avoid side effects. The plant shall be fixed on the base of the excavation, according to the
manufacturer's installation instructions.
The excavation shall be backfilled with rounded gravel (size from 3 mm to 8 mm).
To test in wet ground conditions, add water to the top of the plant, as defined in Figure C.5.
C.6.2 Procedure
Step 1: Measure the initial internal dimensions of the plant.
Step 2: Place the plant in the test excavation.
Step 3: Backfill with gravel up to the level of pipe connections and simultaneously fill the plant with water up
to the top, after sealing the inlet and outlet pipe connections. The volume of water shall be measured.
After that, discharge the plant.
For tanks made of concrete or GRP, the volume of water in the plant shall be measured; after that,
discharge the plant.
For tanks made of other materials, discharge the plant and measure the volume of water in the plant
one day later.
Step 4: Check the position of the inlet and outlet pipe connections.
Step 5: Complete the backfill up to the maximum permitted depth, in accordance with the manufacturer’s
installation instructions, including the pedestrian load (2,5 kN/m
2
) converted to a uniform backfill load.
Seal the inlet and outlet pipe connections and, for a wet ground test, add water in the excavation to
the level of the top of the plant.
Step 6: For a plant with a tank made of concrete or GRP, maintain the test conditions for 24 h. For a plant
with a tank made of other materials, maintain the test conditions for 3 weeks.
Step 7: In wet condition: examine the inside of the plant to show the watertightness is maintained. Discharge
the water from the excavation. If the plant is watertight, refill with water, and measure any change in
the capacity of the plant.
In dry condition: examine the inside of the plant. Refill with the volume of water required to fill the
plant and measure any change in the capacity of the plant.
Check the position of inlet and outlet pipe connections and the internal dimensions of the plant.

to CEN by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association.
The clauses of this European Standard shown in this annex meet the requirements of the Mandate M/118
given under the EU Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC).
Compliance with these clauses confers a presumption of fitness of the construction products covered by this
annex for their intended uses indicated herein. Reference shall be made to the information accompanying the
CE marking.
WARNING: Other requirements and other EU Directives, not affecting the fitness for intended use, may be
applicable to the construction products falling within the scope of this standard.
NOTE In addition to any specific clauses relating to dangerous substances contained in this European Standard,
there may be other requirements applicable to the products falling within its scope (e.g. transposed European legislation
and national laws, regulations and administrative provisions). In order to meet the provisions of the EU Construction
Products Directive, these requirements need also to be complied with, when and where they apply. An informative
database of European and national provisions on dangerous substances is available at the Construction web site on

The requirement on a certain characteristic is not applicable in those Member States (MSs) where there are
no regulatory requirements on that characteristic for the intended use of the product. In this case,
manufacturers placing their products on the market of these Mss are not obliged to determine nor declare the
performance of their products with regards to this characteristic and the option "No performance determined"
(NPD) in the information accompanying the CE marking (see ZA.3) may be used. The NPD option may not be
used, however, where the characteristic is subject to a threshold level.
